“Sands of Time” preview on Myspace (and titles of other tracks on the single posted too!)

With thanks to both Sesshy and the Back-on Facebook Group for the news, Back-on have posted a 50-second preview of Sands of Time on their official Myspace! The great thing about this preview is that it seems to be from the start of the song, where as Sesshy put it, Kenji03 sings with an electronic voice :)

We also get to hear the first verse+rap, and I have to say, I love the introduction to the song! If you haven’t heard it already, you really seriously must. I demand kindly request it. :p Incredibly catchy imho!

In addition to the preview, the band have also posted the titles of the other two tracks that will be released along with Sands of Time on May 21st 2008, so the final tracklisting for the single is as follows:

  1. Sands of Time (ED for “Keitai Sousakan 7“)
  2. message for kidz
  3. fifty/50

And before I forget, for those who can’t access their Myspace, we have of course done the usual mp3 rip for you to download which you can find below. Enjoy! And let us know what you think of the preview too! :)

p/s: If you’re interested in a mash-up between the Myspace preview + TV Size version of Sands of Time, please take a look at the dedicated “Sands of Time” + Keitai Sousakan 7 discussion thread on the Forums! (Hint: post #102)

Music page updated with new downloads and a new poll

I’ll admit, it’s been a LONG LONG time since we updated the Music section of BOO, but better late than never, ne? Our last update was in September 2007, when New World and Hikari Sasuhou were voted the most wanted downloads, and up till now, each song has been downloaded over 1100 times, a new record for the Music page and definitely not just because of the delay in updating this page!

This time, a day dreaming… and Kodou were the top favourites of our voters, and as usual, we have also put up two extra downloads for just one week only, including the much-requested Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) as well as the runner up from the previous polls, forward.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the latest polls, and if possible, it would be great if you could vote again in the next one, where:

  • Butterfly (Butterfly single)
  • DRIVE (New World album)
  • Believer (Chain single)
  • Grab (Survive compliation album)
  • Gaku-Ten (Baby Rock album)
  • RAIN (New World album)

are all up for selection. It might be a bit more difficult to choose this time! :)

More updates will be forthcoming throughout the site, as well as more content from various contributors! And before I forget, we have updated the affiliate link with Sound EX from their Myspace to their official new website! The people behind the website are Nao and Sesshy, and I would encourage everyone to pay a visit, particularly as the graphics used for the site design really are fantastic! I’ve included a screenshot of the new site design below as a taster, but look out for the flash movie on the splash page – it’s worth the wait – and this is coming from someone who doesn’t usually take a second glance at splash pages.

Download the flower and Butterfly previews on Myspace as mp3s!

This probably qualifies as Yet Another Media News Post (YAMNP), but now that we’re just under a month away from the release of both flower and Butterfly, the wait has almost become unbearable (for me at least) without listening to the previews of either track at least once a day! >_<

So if you are experiencing the same kind of symptoms, and haven’t already recorded both previews (available from Back-on’s Myspace), fear not, because you can now download both clips from BOO as mp3s! They are a little quiet, so you might need to turn up the volume a little on your iPod equivalent, but hopefully they will be of some help whilst we all endure the wait!

Murder Princess OVA OST – Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) TV-Size mp3!

Ever since we posted about the official release of the Murder Princess OVA OST, we’ve been checking on Nipponsei on a daily basis to see if we could find the official TV-size version of Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) which was used as the OP of the straight-to-video anime, and it is definitely one of the most popular songs by Back-on!

I’m happy to say that the soundtrack is now available on Nipponsei, but not before Yakhobian of CrystalNova kindly emailed us with his copy of the song, so a big thanks to Yakhobian for sharing the file! You may recall that this is the same Yakhobian-san who originally provided us all with the original recording of Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver)!

You can find the download below, and if you’re interested in singing along to the lyrics or finding out what they mean, take a look at the Lyrics, which have also been kindly provided by Yakhobian too! :)

Music page updated with new featured downloads (Series 5) and radio playlist!

Those who have already subscribed to the mailing list will already have received an email notifying them of the update to the Music page! Thanks to everyone who has been waiting patiently for the past month, I do appreciate your supportive comments! :D

In this particular update, the featured radio playlist is BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…, Back-on‘s latest single release. This means you can listen to the two title tracks, their TV-size versions as well as EYES!

With regards to the featured downloads, nearly 45% of the 270 voters wanted BLAZE LINE (Eyeshield 21 OP), whilst 30% voted for the all-time favourite, Chain (Air Gear OP!) We’ve also had a special request for Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and Drive, so to show our appreciation to the kind supporters of Back-on Online, both these songs are now available for download for one week!

Please do continue to vote for your favourite songs, but please remember, if you LIKE the songs, try and support Back-on by buying their CDs/attending their concerts!

Even if you can’t do so at the moment, seriously don’t worry, you can also help the band by spreading the word about their music! So please try and name-drop Back-on to your friends, family and the internet! :D

Back-on’s TV Size mp3s for Air Gear, Murder Princess and Eyeshield 21

I read somewhere that it’s good for sites to do summary posts sometimes, and although I’ve been tempted to try it several times, it’s taken me a while to think of a good summary theme to post about!

This is actually sort of in-conjunction with Sowon‘s Back-on Music Competition on the Forums, where each time, participants have to sing one particular song (TV size version) from Back-on‘s repetoire. (Please consider entering the competition, minna! :D) Usually, it does help to ‘record’ with the song in question playing in the background, which brings me to the main topic:

where can I find TV size mp3s of Back-on‘s songs?

It would probably be helpful to first provide a list of the songs, so without further ado in the order of Anime Title | Type | Song Title :

Anime Title Type Song Title
Air Gear OP Chain
Murder Princess (OVA) OP ヒカリサスホウ Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.)
Eyeshield 21 OP BLAZE LINE
Eyeshield 21 ED a day dreaming…

Aside from Chain, most of the mp3s are available for download somewhere on Back-on Online, and since this is a summary post, you can find the direct-links to the posts in question below:

But where can you find Chain? This only happens to be one of the most popular Back-on songs ever. The answer is simple: visit Japtard.com. Or more specifically,

view the post Air Gear OST – What a Groovy Trick!

You can the entire OST available for download (at 320kbps) – either as a zip file, or individual mp3 files. Chain (TV Size) is the first song on the 34-track album. The download has kindly been provided by Frox, who has credited Nipponsei for the original release.

Hopefully this post will be helpful to those searching for ‘that’ opening/ending theme by Back-on. Almost every single one so far also has their corresponding lyrics posted on the site somewhere, so take a look at the Lyrics section if you’re interested, particularly if you’d like to participate in the competition!




Download Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and Grab this week!

Thank you all for your patience! :D Sorry about the slight delay (due to revision/exams) – I promised in the previous post, which introduced the Survive compilation, that Back-on Online would provide Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and Grab for download. A big thanks to those who made an effort to show their support by posting comments on the Music page!

Survive - Compilation - Cover

So without further ado:

Site update: New Downloads available in Music for June 2007

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post about site updates, as so much has been happening lately! Although no major changes have been made, there have been a few edits here and there. I think they call this a nip-tuck?

However, this time, to celebrate the forthcoming release of Back-on‘s latest single: BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…, instead of just featuring 2 songs for download, for the next 5 days – until June 6th 2007 (the official release date for BL/ADD) – all 4 songs that were featured in the previous vote (where 169 people participated for their most-wanted download) will be available!

These are:

  1. Believer (Chain)
  2. Rain (New World)
  3. Gaku-Ten (Baby Rock)
  4. Nuts Tribe (Baby Rock)

After that, just the top two winners will remain as usual (as bolded)
You can reach the Music page by visiting: http://www.backon-online.com/multimedia/music/

Again, the aim of the downloads section is to provide a ‘one-stop’ place for fans and potential fans to listen to Back-on’s work – ‘try before you buy‘. You can support Back-on even more by buying their albums and attend their concerts. There is more information about where you can purchase the cds avilable on the Music page.

Finally… there hasn’t been any change to the Radio section of Music for the moment… but check back in two weeks! :) Don’t forget to vote in the new Poll in the meantime!

Download the OP version of BLAZE LINE from Eyeshield 21 Episode 104

This time, we have to thank [l33t-raws] for providing the raw version of Eyeshield 21, Episode 104 so that Back-on Online could provide the TV Size version of BLAZE LINE. I have already briefly mentioned my initial impressions of the song, but in the meantime… what do you think?

BLAZE LINE OP version (2.31 MB, Zipped)

Eyeshield 21 OP - BACK-ON - BLAZE LINE (3117 downloads)

With regards to the accompanying opening credits video uploaded by Back-on Online, unfortunately despite the original file being fairly high quality,with a recommended 4:3 ratio, the way Youtube has compressed the file has had a devastating effect on its quality, so apologies. We will continue to experiment with the output for a better quality picture!
